Spring street and sidewalk sweeping program underway

The City’s spring street and sidewalk sweeping program has started and there are a total of nine days of concentrated sweeping this year. Please see the map and schedule below for Somerset Ward.

Operations will only be running during daytime hours to minimize the impact on residents. Staff will place no parking signs on the streets where they will be sweeping. Any vehicles that are still parked in these locations will be ticketed and towed to a nearby street.

The cleanup process will include multiple roadway sweepers and sidewalk sweepers. The sweepers will be making multiple passes over the entire roadway to ensure all winter debris has been removed.  This can mean upwards of 6 to 8 passes on each roadway. Once all sweeping has been completed on a section of road and all equipment has moved onto another street, residents will be able to park on it immediately.
